    I was told in rehab that the level of injury can go higher due to things like cysts on the cord. I would recommend you see you doctor if you have noticed changes

      Hi,

      You didn't mention:

      How long go was your injury and at what level?
      Was this change in sensation sudden or gradual over a longer period of time?
      Area there any other new symptoms?

        My injury is about 1 and a half years post.My level is a T5-6. It has changed in a period of about 2 weeks or 3. no new symptoms,but it kinda scares me, i dont want it to go higher and effect my hands or arm ability.

          Hmmmm, When was your last MRI? Sudden change in level of function can indicate a spinal cord cyst also known as a syrinx or syringomyelia. They frequently start above the level of injury and could account for the symptoms you are experiencing. Of course, other things could also be the cause such as a tethered cord but it should be checked out by your Dr or preferably your neurologist.
